Vibrant flowers, traditional landscapes and street scenes all featured in a town art society's anual exhibition of stunning paintings.

Wymondham Art Society's chairman, artist Deborah Hallam, welcomed Wymondham mayor Robert Savage and more than 70 guests to the special private view evening which opened the exhibition.

Over the next few weeks 100 framed paintings by members of the society were on show, using all mediums - oils, pastels, watercolours, pencil, pen and collage.

The subjects portrayed were equally diverse - traditional landscapes, vibrant flowers, street scenes, animal portraits and everything inbetween.

All work, including a number of inexpensive unframed paintings, were for sale.

Music was ably provided by the Bays River Jazz Duo and liquid refreshment by Wymondham wine merchant Reno Wine.

As always, the display of small original paintings was particularly popular, painted by the exhibiting artists as raffle prizes.
